    Hi my company has deducted TDS @ 20% due to non availability of PAN details for some parties for FY 2011-12. Now we want to correct the records for the said parties. But the RPU 1.2 is not allowing correction of TDS deducted details and tax rates. Is there a way to file a correction statement for the same.
